RCMP officers rescue two people from burning home

Mar. 3, 2017, Loon Lake, Sask. -  A pair of RCMP officers pulled two people out of a burning house on the Makwa Sahgaiehcan First Nation this week.


The officers from the Loon Lake detachment responded to a complaint of a potential assault early Wednesday evening, but when they arrived they found the house was on fire.

A woman was removed to safety uninjured.

Officers then re-entered and helped a man get out, then went back in to see if anyone else was inside.

However, the man they'd gotten out went inside again as the house was fully engulfed by flames.

One of the officers boosted the other up to the main floor bedroom window and they were able to pull the man to safety.
